simple trk interior

When upholstering a trk I have the bucket seats done by a shop, I do the rest myself.
Here are a few pics of how I do the cab headliner & the area behind the front seat.
When I chop the top I lay the top upside down & using door panels skins(thin plywood)I buy from Home Depot I line the top with it
& fiberglass the pcs together. When done it is removed, uhpolstered & placed back in(held by a few screws) The back of the cab is done the same way.
I do the uhpolstery br spraying Weldwood contact cement on the wood & foam then attach the foam to the wood. I then do the same with the vynl to attach it to the foam.

Looks like something I will try on a 41 Ford pickup. On the pics the truck you show has a finished steel area between the headliner and backpanel. Mine does not, so there will have to be a seem between the 2 panels, plus that area has a lot of compound bends. Have you tried this?

Looks like a very good idea. I saw pictures of a 67 Chevelle floor done the same way. The thin plywood was laid out on the floor then the guy just glassed everything together. It was covered with carpet and Ultra Leather. How do you hold the plywood on the top and side before you apply the glass.

The AD trucks has a double wall interior so I held the wood in place with sheet metal screws. That's what makes it so easy on these trucks.

It sounds like I would have to bond on wooden bows to screw the plywood to. If anyone has a better idea please let me know. My Nova has a traditional head liner and door panels, etc. I would like to add a more modern look to it. The A and B pillars are just sheet metal so I would need a way to add material to them. I'm trying to find bucket seats for the car and will need to form a console as well.
